Storyline

Anxious to use artificial life to improve the world, Rosetta Stone, a bio-geneticist creates a Recipe for Cyborgs and uses her own DNA in order to breed three Self Replicating Automatons, part human, part computer named Ruby, Olive and Marine. The SRA's act as 'portals' on the Internet, helping users to fulfill their dreams. The SRA's are nourished through touch. Because they were bred only with Rosetta's DNA, they need the balance of an Y chromo or male sperm to survive. Rosetta projects seduction scenes from movie clips onto Ruby, which absorbs as she sleeps. The SRA'S can not distinguish dreams from reality. Ruby acts out these scenes in real life with the men and shares her spoils with her sisters. However, Ruby's encounters suffer from impotence and unexplained rashes. Fearing a bio-gender war, the FBI sends in Agent Edward Hopper to solve the mystery. Puzzled, he turns for help from a private cyber detective. The men recover. Ruby falls in love and becomes impregnated by Sandy, ... Written by wayne@wildstrawberryfilms.com

Tilda Rocks!
6 September 2007 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Normally I'd be bagging a film with science as bad as this one, but fortunately, I detected the tongue firmly lodged in the cheek, and was able to suspend my intolerance long enough to appreciate what the director was trying to tell us (Huh, what was that?).

While I can't fully forgive the exclusive use of Apple laptops (no, thanks, I'd rather have a real computer), or the scientific faux pas which were liberally sprinkled throughout the film, I was mesmerized by all the Tildas on the screen. She is reason enough to watch this, no matter how many plot holes or implausible scenarios there are. There is wry humour aplenty if you look for it, like the tea made from used condoms. Multiple viewings are likely necessary if you want to pick all of them up.

I think this is a film made by girls, for girls, but it's the first one of that sort that I can unabashedly say, as a man, that I enjoyed watching.
